-school in dallas or houston, we want to be able to admit that students. the university of texas is saying we want to consider race sometimes and that is what the dispute is about. the critics say, no, it is wrong to consider race and you don't need to do it in this case. you've got a reasonable amount of racial diversity. host: let's turn to another case -- as you enter that, i will show that had line from "the wall street journal." answer to't know the that question. i think it would be unlikely, however. justice scalia is 76 and justice kennedy is 76. they are both generally on the right side of the court. justice ruth better ginsburg will be 80 in the spring. she is the oldest of the justices on the liberal side. if you had to guess who was going to leave in the next four years, i think the standard guess would be justice ginsburg. it was very important for the ideological makeup of the court whether barack obama or mitt romney is president of united states because it justice ginsburg had left and another conservative justice came in, that could have changed the balance of the court. if, in th

and their recovery. let's go to james in dallas, texas. caller: good morning. the answer to your question. it is very difficult to have a lot of confidence in the security team regardless of what happened in benghazi. the president could have come out and given the public the truth. a lot of callers will call in and say people do not like barack obama because of his skin color. i voted for barack obama in 2000 because of his skin color. i wanted this country to get passed a landmark issue of electing a african-american for president. one of your earlier callers mentioned the daywear the target. i see no reason why this administration did not take action. if they did not take action because they did not know what was happening, i think there is evidence they did know what was happening, it is unforgivable. if they did not know what was going on, that is even more inexcusable. host: manhattan, kansas. dave is an independent caller. caller: i just wanted to say the foreign policy of obama is a spitting image of bush. we have droned more pakistan as than bush under obama. it is only creating more terrori

to a big fan. i saw this from the guy from dallas, there will be enormous political pressure on the secretary of the treasury. in what universe? right on america today is even thought of helping an institution they be impeached. i do not understand how people misread. >> you don't believe if jpmorgan or citigroup are really troubled that think they were going down and markets are falling apart under voluntary sahara or would find a way to save that for quick >> is the other way round. he must be disconnected with what's going on in the world. seriously, any effort to help existing financial institution, from the guy who got the point better, debating guy who wrote the book who attacks us as well as the economist for preventing intervention at that point. if you're time that congress would then vote to change it, it would take a vote of congress. it would be illegal to do anything with the institution until the institution is spread out. under the law, sarah palin was partly right. we did t-test panels in 2010, but they were for big banks. no aid can go to any institution unti
